Research Profile

Rosie R. Meade

Biography

My academic interests are quite diverse, but are generally centred on issues of democracy, power and resistance in the social and cultural spheres. More specifically, I have written, researched and publicly presented on themes related to: community activism and its relationships with the state; community development as a product of 'government' and social policy; governmentality and the professionalisation of civil society; media representations of social movements and protest; cultural democracy and cultural resistance; the theory of community arts; the politics of the Left; alternative media practices; Brand Ireland and the 'functionalising' of Irish culture; consumerism; and the Older People's Uprising.

My colleague Orla O'Donovan and I are the editors of the international Community Development Journal (
http://cdj.oxfordjournals.org/).  Along with Orla O'Donovan and Fiona Dukelow, both colleagues of mine in the School of Applied Social Studies, UCC, I am  an editor of the Sireacht Series that is published by Cork University Press.  More information on the series and the titles published to date can be found at: 
http://sireacht.ie/ 

With Mae Shaw of Edinburgh University and Sarah Banks of Durham University, I am a series editor of the Rethinking Community Development Series that is published by Policy Press in Bristol. Please follow this link for more information.https://policypress.co.uk/rethinking-community-development 

Aside from my involvement as Editor and member of the editorial board of the Community Development Journal, I have also acted as a peer reviewer for a number of national and international journals. They include: Antipode; Critical Studies in Media Communication; Policy and Politics; Studies in the Education of Adults, The Irish Feminist Review; The Irish Journal of Public Policy; The Irish Journal of Sociology; Voluntary Sector Review. 

I am currently a member of the BSocSc Team and I am responsible for coordinating the second year of the BSocSc degree in the School of Applied Social Studies.  Second year Social Science Students are very welcome to contact me with any course related queries or concerns.  I also teach on the third year of the BSocSc programme (Module SS3009) and supervise a number of third year dissertations each year (SS3031). Along with the above teaching and administrative roles, I teach on programmes across the School of Applied Social Studies: on the first and second years of the BSocSc Youth and Community Work (Modules SS1102 and SS2104); the Higher Diploma in Social Policy (Module SS5021).   To date I have supervised or am currently supervising post-graduate students on the Masters in Community and Voluntary Sector Management, the Masters in Social Policy, the MSocSc and the MSocSc (Youth and Community Work).   I also have supervised or am currently supervising students on the DSocSc and on the School of Applied Social Studies PhD programme.

My activist interests are varied and over the years I have participated in a range of community and social movement organisations.  These include Immigrant Solidarity, Cork Women's Support Group, The National Federation of Campaigns Against Racism, The William Thompson Weekend, The Glen Leadership and Equality Network CDP, The MayDay Committee, the Cork Anti War Campaign and Cork Community Television and Cork Community Artlink.
 





Research Interests

My teaching, research and activist interests include:
  • The arts and cultural democracy;
  • Brand Ireland and 'functionalised' culture;
  • Cultural resistance and alternative media;
  • Media representations of social movements and protest;
  • Community development, government and the state;
  • Adult and community education;
  • 'Left' politics in Ireland. 
  • The Older People's Uprising
Currently I am collaborating with my colleagues Mae Shaw (Institute of Education, Community and Society, Moray House, University of Edinburgh) and Sarah Banks (Centre for Social Justice and Community Action, University of Durham) around the development of the book series 'Rethinking Community Development', for Policy Press (Bristol).  As series editors we envisage that volumes in the series will draw together international, cross-generational and cross-disciplinary perspectives to offer a critical re-evaluation of community development in theory and practice. The first two Books in the series, Politics, Power and Community Development (editors, Meade, Shaw and Banks), and Class, Inequality and Community Development (editors Shaw and Mayo)  are now available. Orla  O'Donovan, my colleague in the School of Applied Social Studies, and I are currently the editors of the Community Development Journal and more information about the journal can be accessed at https://academic.oup.com/cdj
